James Stevens graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Radio-Television-Film. While in Austin, he produced two award winning television shows for KVR09 Austin. He also produced, wrote and directed multiple narrative and documentary shorts that played in a variety of film festivals. His latest project, “Time for a Hero,” combines musical, comedic and dramatic elements, enhancing his directing scope. He is currently developing his first feature film in Los Angeles.
Stevens’ experience with multiple genres and formats is valuable to any production. As a young and upcoming filmmaker, Stevens credits much of his growth to opportunities with established directors such as Joss Whedon, Wes Anderson and Danny Boyle. Breaking into theater at 12-years-old, he continued acting through high school and college. His love for directing started when he directed a one act play in high school and now he consistently takes on challenging projects that feed his passion for filmmaking.
